Hey guy's new to the forum . Anyway yesterday I finished lowering my 92 brougham . Got sick of it looking like a 4x4 lol . I came up with a moog spring combo using s-10 front springs(moog #5660) and g-body rear springs(moog #5379) . Shocks I used gabriel max's and cut down some zq8 bumpstops to use in the front . I also replaced all the balljoints even though they were still good...car only has 52000 miles. As for how much drop I got...4 inches in the front and 3.5 inches in the back . I'm definitely happy with the results . Drove the car about 30 miles last night and it rides better than before . I'll post some pics of how she is sitting later . Total cost was $300 for parts and can be picked up at most auto stores

It doesn't look too bad; looks like where it should have been. I would be interested to see what it looks like with the factory wheels.

Looks nice. Why not use the Impala lowering springs? Too stiff?

Looks prime! It must have set quite high before you lowered it,since it looks right where it should be now.
Likes the window tint too!

Wrong forum for that bruh, it looks beautiful BUT people here dont like chrome wheels. It has a lot to do with geographical location, some people think chrome wheels are for the ghetto. Once again your car is looking gooddddddd.

Well, aren't Cadillacs technically supposed to have Chrome rims? I mean, Cadillac Did make factory chrome rims after all. I presume though, that he means big ones like that. I don't know, my car had big, gold, 22" spoke rims once. That was probably the scariest thing about my car. Ever.

Yeah ya know...my rims are 20's not that big . Do you have any pictures of yours with the 22's ?
